Introduced in 1956, the Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz was the convertible counterpart to the Eldorado Seville two-door hardtop and was an instant hit. Beautiful and luxurious, the Biarritz's name is tied to a French coastal resort town that couldn't be more beautiful.
By the Eldorado's fifth generation, introduced for 1961, the big fins of the 1950s had been reworked to a sleek low profile design by GM head of design Bill Mitchell. A very distinctive feature are the "double fins" on both the top and the bottom of the rear quarter giving that real jet age look. Still loaded with chrome the front end has a full width grille and quad headlights. The interior design is just as beautiful with a sleek mid century dashboard and beautiful front bucket seats. Under the hood the 390 cubic inch V8 gives plenty of power to carry the Biarritz at comfortable speeds, especially mated to the 4 speed hydramatic transmission. The 1962 Eldorado convertible is one of the most iconic Cadillacs to ever come out of the General Motors design department.
